Former teacher sent to prison for taking students to Warren hotel
A former teacher from the Valley has been sentenced for taking two of her teenage students to Trumbull County hotels to have sex.
Christina Sosbe, 29, formerly of Salem, appeared in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court on Monday where she was ordered to spend one year in the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville. She must also register as a Tier Three Sex Offender.
Sosbe pleaded guilty earlier to one count of sexual battery, a third-degree felony. She had been indicted on three counts.
According to Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman, Sosbe was a teacher at a program located inside Choffin Career and Technical Center in Youngstown when she had sexual relations with two 16-year-old male students.
A spokesperson for Choffin tells 21 News that Sosbe was not employed by the school, but worked for an organization called Pace that was located in Choffin.
According to the indictment, the alleged incidents took place on December 8 and December 9, 2018.
Wildman says Sosbe stayed with the teens at a hotel on Courthouse Square. That hotel has since changed ownership.
Sosbe’s license to teach math was permanently revoked last year.
